TGIF and the Thyroid Pub

2885100?1210326036
Here's another guessing game to play on the Pub today. I couldn't pass up this picture. So what DO YOU think this chicken (or??) is feeling with it's thyroid situation??

To me it definately looks like it's on a mission - but to what?   Hmmmmmmm I gotta think about this one today :)

I woke up this moning - stretched out my arms and thought it was Saturday. - Then reality checked in :(

I like brain fog better when it is in my favor .....................LOL

Hope we all can gather together tonight and share the week we all had. I am so curious about Utah.  I wonder if she will behave herself since she is now a "happy camper" lately.

Happy Friday people !!   Rite ?? are you interested in jumping behind the bar and pour drinks? AR wants to socialize lately.

I can already tell I need the recliner tonight. I'm gonna turns the vibes on and just melt in that chair.

THIS MAKES MY THYROID MORNINGS something to look forward to ...

I took one look @ this chicken in flight and laughed and laughed and laughed, which at 6:00 AM isn't an easy task before taking my thyroid meds which, btw, I have put off in lieu of heavy duty allergy/sinus meds to take first due to Sinus Headache!!!  Synthroid will come later .. too close together and jitters all day so not worth the hassle.

Back to the Chicken:   That is me running away when I get the brush off from a Dr.  Claws fully extended and ready to attack back and not let them get away with it .. I've been lucky in the thyroid world in this respect but not to lucky with my kidney stone problems and have had to urology shop until I found a great Uro who listens and is in my Top 3 Dr. List ... Kind of like Top 3 in Am. Idol .. oh .. speaking of which ....

American Idol: Who should win?

Hi. When you started the post, you said "Rite do you want to pour the drinks tonight?" I know this sounds daft, but do you mean me (as in UK Rite)? Coz not sure if there's any other Rite's on here. Because if you do I'm delighted you asked. Not sure how to do it though. Always felt a bit embarrassed as I didn't know how the pub situation worked, so didn't come on. But I'm game to try.
Blank
168348_tn?1379360675
I say you tend the bar .. if it is another Rite .. then you two both will be co-bartenders .... Stella is at work right now .... so I made the executive decision in her absence  ....  so yeah ... YOU ARE IT TONIGHT!

Yes I did see the cat community and at first I thought I'd finally lost it! A cat community! And yes my cat Dinky is a real cutey. Most of the time. However, today I had to chase him round the garden whilst he played tag with a poor baby frog. He kept flicking it in the air and catching it in his mouth, little sod, until I rescued it. And I just love the pictures Stella puts on of her cat, they are so so funny. How does she get him to pull those faces!

Hep and know that I think about it - it has relation to AR's post of Senory Overload.

I bumped his post so everyone could see it.

This chicken is portraying very definitively how I feel about my GP - the man who told me for past decade I was "borderline hypo and didnt need treatment". Ten years on I'm five stone heavier, gray haired, sore joints, exhausted and often tearful. In between all that I feel like this chicken does! give me a target around your jugular Mr Gp and i'll sink my claws in and peck you till you bleed! Honestly I;m not really aggressive but this episode of medical neglect has brought out the worst in my character and when I think of all the folk who are in similiar boats well this chicken says it all!!. LOL

There is a special on for tonight. We have it here in the UK and you can't beat it. But I can only give you the abbreviation for it. Which is ALSSUATW! Can anyone guess what it stands for??? Don't know if I can write it in full, might get suspended for using rude language on here!!!

I don't know what ALSSUATW is, but I'll take one!

I hope TheCarMan shows up. I feel like uh...odd MAN out, if you know what I mean. I AM odd, I'll admit, but I feel outnumbered here, and every time Utah shows me those chicken teeth, I get a little freaked out. :-0

Just kidding Utah. :-)
Heh, heh, heh.

Hi guys.  I wanted to stop in and say "Hey".  I so wish I could "over-imbibe" with you tonight... I have to get ready for a neighborhood party, but if I could have a quick drink, I think I might feel better about my lousey day...  What's the name of that VERY strong drink mentioned earlier?  I'll have one of those.  AR, did she tell you how to make them before she left?  Or will I have to sit next to you with my straw?

Quite the drink, huh Pep?
Notice it was over half full when you got here.

Think I'll just keep shlepping back here for a while.

So, who are we gonna talk about? Dac?

MKlacza!!! She Gone! We can talk about her! Did you see the way she rushed out? Took the glass and ran. Wonder where she's going?
Blank
280485_tn?1249017444
MKlacza has gone be with "people", don't-cha-know...  This drink does seem rather strong!  What is in it and what's it called?  Do I need a "secret" PM?  I need a good new drink with lots of booze.  We're going to be entertaining people we don't know very well for an auction thing we donated for my daughter's school.  I want to get them all drunk fast and become friends!  :-P

People...(*shudder*)

Don't be shuddering...  You see them every day.  They don't bite.  All of us here are "people" (I think...).  I am actually going out to see a few of them myself in about a half hour...  Button registering "OVERLOAD", I know, I know...

BTW, I do agree with the sensory post you put up.  I didn't post because it was getting long and repetitive.  But I have noticed that when I'm talking to my husband and my daughter is talking and talking and talking and talking... I can't hear myself think and I get very short with her.  Never realized it was me and not her.  I just kept thinking I was getting old.... HEAVEN FORBID!!!  LOL!

Sorry all, I had a little girl who thought she might toss her cookies...  Guess I'm not going to any party tonight except this one... :-) :-(  Ah well, you all are as fun to hang out with as "real people" (AR that was for you...) LOL...

ChitChat, did I not speak clearly enough?  Or was it the "loudly" enough that was the problem?? ;-P

Where did that acronym cocktail go, AR?

You can't dilute it, I'm pretty sure.

ChitChat, you have me so confused now...  I don't think I'm following the posts right or something...  Maybe I need a "real" cocktail?  What did you "refrain" from doing?  Did I miss it?  Am I just slow from the acronym cocktail?  Or is it the brain fog, back to kiss me/bite me in the a$$?  :-P

"Tinfoil Booth Lady" - makes me sound 85!  LOL!  =)

I have heard mention of the tinfoil hats, but I'm not sure what their origin is.  Anyone care to share?

My husband has offered to wrap himself in foil so I can stay in our room during RAI!  That is what gave me the idea for my booth tonight so I could visit the Pub....I feel awful, so a good night with you fabulous folks is just what the doctor ordered!  Don't worry - I'm WAAAAAAAAAAAY over in my corner, protected by tinfoil, and I installed a speaker so I can hear what all of you are saying. I also have a mic so I can comment back, and you can hear me!  

Ginger ale is still my drink of choice, though....stupid RAI.
Blank
280485_tn?1249017444
I think I just take too long to post and I miss new posts on the threads... I am kinda slow, I guess...  Yeah, that little pumpkin could soon look like the ones we carve at Halloween where you make two eyes, and a great big hole for the mouth, then leave all the seeds spilling out of it... Blah!

I didn't really want to go to the party with real people anyway.  All that "small talk"... FREAKS me out!  ChitChat, is that what you meant by my yelling?  

I know a retired kindergarten principal who told me one that I write like I talk.  It was a good thing, she assured me... There is a word for it (I can't remember it now)  But I do write exactly as I would speak.  VERY ANIMATED!

I wish I had participated more in the forum when I was going through that RAI cr@p!  I feel for you.  It sucked!  A triple cocktail for you.  You can still keep the ginger ale, but we'll throw in something "extra", shall we say.  It does get better.  I hope you are wearing rubber gloves as you post though!

It is the simple things in life I like.

Origami

Yes

Like it

But only to look at

No interest to make it

Too much anxiety to do it

NOT relaxing.

On that note .. let's go to the new TGIF thread ... part II cont'd
